Yonder stands da castle of my fodda

it will always make me think of this line: "Yonder stands da castle of my fodda" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Black_Shield_of_Falworth

Hmmmmmm... I thought it must be a Monty Python "Quest for the Holy Grail" kinda quotation, till I checked out your link about The Black Shield of Falworth (a 1954 film) But apparently this quotation doesnt really exist in the film!
Wikipedia states:
The film is famous for an apocryphal line, rendered as "Yonder stands da castle of my fodda" or similar. The plot details above show that this would not fit the story: there is no "castle of my father". This chestnut used to be quoted in Radio Times whenever the film was on BBC television, and found its way into a 2007 study of Tony Curtis's work by Clive James. It clearly derives from American snobbery about Curtis's origins, and has crossed the Atlantic unchecked by film writers actually viewing the movie. Curtis has denied ever saying that line, but he did actually say a similar line in the movie Son of Ali Baba, released in 1952, that reads, "This is the palace of my father, and yonder lies the Valley of the Sun."
How wierd! If it doesnt exist in the film then where the hell did the legend come from? Maybe Tony Curtis actually said (in his mumbly New Yorky way) something like "He understands that hassle of dry fodder" when talking about his groom's sensitivity to his (or his horse's) hay-fever or something like that.... and it ended up being interpreted as referring to a fantomatic father's castle.... oh, fuck knows, i'd never even heard about this film till 5 minutes ago... it is as crap as it seems to be judging by the plot? Where did they dream up silly names like "Diccon Bowman" and "the lord of Crosbey-Dale"???

It is snobbery. However it is amusing to see Hollywood's take on medieval England, or vikings or where ever, using actors with strong Bronx accents. I also recommend 'The Vikings' (1958) with Tony Curtis and Kirk Douglas, and Taras Bulba (1962) with Tony and Yul Brynner as Cossacks. I have heard that there is a film about Ghengis Khan starring John Wayne...but surely it can't be true.

I found this hilarious review of 'The Vikings':

Yup. Ghenghis Kahn. They really made this movie.

What did "beautilicious" have to do with George? Not any George I know, anyway.

Oh, well, back to the game:
